I suppose I should have asked if were appropriate for me to join since I am not from UK. This is the best site I came upon where I found myself reading about people speaking quite openly about their mental health issue. Telling about the treatments they have had or not had. Medications they were prescribed or not prescribed. The side affects of the meds and the side affect these issues have on your daily lives, friends, family and workplace. I do not understand some of the shortcuts you write as ours are different here. I believe you have a GP, would that be General Practitioner? We in the midwest have a PCP Primary Care Physycian. You mention meds I have never heard of but that may only be because I have just yesterday finally opened the door and laid it all out to my PCP. I didn't hold back. From reading all these discussions all of you gave me the courage to finally pull my issues off the back burner take them to the table and serve them up. I see people here that are lost, alone, hurting and scared, and I see some of those same people being helpful, kind and caring and hanging in there for someone else when you yourself are carrying your own huge bundle of lives gone wrong, or not lived as well as they should have been. Sharing and taking strength from each other. I've seen no judgements or harrassments or anything even close to someone being put down or told that what they have to say is not valid, or it's not that bad, don't worry about it, just get over it. So I ask: Please may I stay?
